Our first day in Finland was GREAT! It started off foggy and cool, but ended up with blue skies and sun. It was a gorgeous fall day, and I'm so pumped we aren't missing out on fall just because we aren't in MN. I started the day at 3:20... lovely jet lag decided that waking up bright and early would be fantastic. And I actually made it through the majority of the day unscathed! It was a great day.
We took off for the town of Poorvo.
looking at an old church, I would've LOVED to get married at this church, so picturesque.
the random wooden ship hanging from the ceiling...
Nothing like a fall walk on cobblestone streets in the vibrams :)
After an amazing lunch of meatballs and mashed potatoes we checked out some cute shops and the chocolate shop :)
We then made our way to Helsinki!
The home of the President. Yes... the Conan O'Brien look-a-like.
orange mushrooms... how freaking sweet.
Oh farmers market how I love thee.
The Church of Doom (Judgement) yes... so very welcoming.
From the top of the church steps looking onto Senate Square.
Getting ready for Russia next week :)
Overall, an absolutely wonderful way to start our Euro Vacation! Can't wait to see what Finland brings us the next 2 weeks!
